So, Fur Ball had a hair cut today. He left the house this morning looking like picture number one, and he came home as picture number two! He feels like a new, transformed puppy! Maybe he feels naked, or like some other poodle, the ones we see prancing down the street. Whatever the case, he certainly feels different. His coat is lovely, it feels just like velvet. The groomer said he was very good, and she just had to leave his ears puffy, like a teddy bear. Fur Ball is sleeping on the couch right now, I think his day has been exhausting. Poor puppy.
I know what it's like to be transformed, and sometimes the process of that is exhausting. Naps are good! Sometimes, as I feel God transform me, I feel naked and exposed. I feel different from the day before. I sometimes want my old familiar habits back. I wonder if Fur Ball is wishing for his puffy coat?
It is amazing, don't you think, how one hair cut can make such a huge difference? Just like with God, one look into my heart, can completely change my life. As I experience the revelation of His truth and His Glory, nothing can stay the same, it's a continual transformation!
Jesus, Say That Again, You are the One that transforms lives. You change me, renew me, restore me, and it's always different. Continue to cut through to the heart of the matter for me!
